"We know what we are, but know not what we may be." WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
I AM DONE living a life shaped by my fears.
_RAMONA is a SparkPeople Motivator!
"[This journey] is not about achieving perfection. It's about achieving a mental and physical TRANSFORMATION. It's about optimizing your strengths, navigating around your vulnerabilities, and goin' for it! ...There can never be, and should never be, perfection in a living thing. There is nothing human about perfection, nothing to endear or inspire."
- eliminate 100 - 140 lbs (not really sure what 'normal' for me should look like)... or whatever gets me to 20% BMI... currently I've eliminated 20%!
- be as generous and loving with myself as I am on behalf of others.
- WRITE: because I owe God an answer!
* READ/LEARN: to transform my mind. Where my mind goes, my body will follow!
* PARTICIPATION on SPARK People to keep me motivated and moving forward

If you really want to know even more about me than is already reflected in my blog, just ask! :)
NOTE: My weight tracker is not a truthful representation of my weight. Instead, I am using it as a tool to help me visualize my goal as though it's already been achieved!

"Lifestyle is unencumbered by obstacles. This means that the things I keep tripping over are something other than obstructive. They are instructive, and part of the directions on my map. Lifestyle is intentional and specific to me. Lifestyle is experiencing, expressing and enjoying every aspect of my life intensely and ardently to the full." - ME -
"Justification and rationalization are only mental masturbations - in the end, you only screw yourself."

"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we really grow up."

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the hell with sugar and spice."
